Waiting In Line Sketch

I find very quick sketches are great practice. This one I did while waiting in line to renew my car registration. When doing a skectch like this I like to focus on the shadows only and use them to quickly build form. I focus on the foreground and then work backwards as the figures receede into the difference. This saves me from having to erase if I started with the further figures.
